Loot Shooter Series Borderlands is about picking up a shiny new weapon one minute and throwing it away for something more powerful the next. The wonders of Tiny Tina continues this trend, but with a few added wrinkles that can end up stalking unsuspecting players who aren’t paying enough attention.

Loot is a numbers game, and like previous entries, The wonders of Tiny Tina throws so much new loot at you that it’s not even worth looking at each room individually. One of the best ways to optimize the grind is to simply accumulate the most powerful items you find, then throw the rest into a vending machine between dungeons. The game knows this, and in two subtle ways, one a clever nod from the developer, the other an accidental bug, it will charge you to go on autopilot.

It’s not unusual, for example, to be so ruthless in the junking stuff that you end up with only weapons that are above your current power cap. I played all Borderlands and at some point I always accidentally keep an arsenal full of awesome weapons that I’m only two or three levels away from being able to equip. In The wonders of Tiny Tinahowever, players have discovered weapons that are simply impossible to equip.

The game’s current level cap is 40, but players have already found loot drops above that (via GamesRadar). “Isn’t that heading 40,” posted a player on the Tiny Tinais the subreddit. “I feel cheated. I want to cry.” Another shared a screenshot of a level 43 submachine gun called “Burgeoning Blazing Volley of the Churning Void” which dealt massive burn damage. Cared for! Alas. “Damn, you started grinding for next month’s expansion,” someone answered.

Some players are actually already hoarding impossible loot in their chests until Gearbox finally raises the game’s level cap. for Wonderlandthere is no roadmap at the moment indicating when the first one will arrive.

Elsewhere, players spotted a more intentional troll: an expensive weapon that loses its value once you fire it. “I fired the gun without reading the description” wrote the player who found it on Reddit. “Safe to say, I got trolled. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Another player wrote in response: “Mental Note: Be extremely careful with anything labeled ‘antique’. »

Sure Wonderland‘ biggest troll of all is that the text is too small to read anything anyway. Well done, Gearbox.
